Well-Preserved

In 1998, Boston Mills Press published Well-Preserved: The Ontario Heritage Foundation’s Manual of Principles and Practice for Architectural Conservation. The publication, edited by Mark Fram, provides an introduction and practical guide to restoration and rehabilitation of our architectural heritage.

The publication was revised in 1992. A third and French edition, Conserver, un savoir-faire : le manuel de la Fondation du patrimoine ontarien sur les théories et les pratiques de la conservation architecturale, was published in 1993. A paperback version was published in 2003. The English-language version available here is copied from the 2003 paperback publication. The French-language version is from the 1993 publication.

Well-Preserved remains a useful and practical guide to architectural conservation in Ontario. Neither publication is currently available in print. So, we’re offering it here as an accessible resource.
